Handmade Stationary Case!
The project I am showing you today is of a Stationary Card Holder. My friend Patty made one of these and I decided to make one! You may have to click on my photos to see the detail.
You can purchase the tutorial for this project and others by clicking on the button in the right side panel. The construction was basically simple. If you can measure and score, you can make this for sure! Easy Peasy! Today you will see the photos of the cards (two types) and the case. The case was made with 3 sheets of cardstock, which included all the pockets and the case. It was pretty basic, but cute. I included 6 cards and envelopes in each pocket. The flowers on one of the sets are going to be your Hot Tip for today! I included a pen pocket too! I had room to include a stamp pocket too, but forgot about it.
You can probably even fit more in! The envelopes were just stamped to match in color and design. I used Baroque Motifs and Medallion Stamp Sets to make the cards and case. The DSP (patterned paper) is not Stampin' Up! It was two pieces bought years ago from a craft store. This gift was given to my grandmother, so she would have birthday cards to send out if she didn't feel well. The paper seemed just her style.
Hot Tip: This hot tip is also a great Punch Art idea! To make a cute simple flower, punch cardstock or patterned paper with your scallop circle punch. Now make small cuts toward the center of the punch, but not quite all the way to the center. The more you cut to the center, the more texture you can have with the petals. Be careful though, because when I punched a hole in the center of one flower, it lopped off a petal! So, make sure you leave room for a hole punch in the center, if you plan to use a brad in the center. Also, for extra texture, wad up the paper punch a couple of times before you cut the slits. This will give more 3D to your flower!
Thanks for stopping by today.
